Quote #7

God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth. (NRSV 9:1) 

And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. (KJV 9:1)

We feel like we've heard this before. Oh, that's right—God said the same thing to the animals and the humans in Genesis 1. And keep your ears open, because it's not the last time God will speak these words.
